Valley Home Care offers a full spectrum of services to meet a variety of healthcare needs. Our highly skilled staff is known for its care and compassion.
Valley Home Care is affiliated with The Valley Hospital in Ridgewood, meaning any patient at Valley has the opportunity to utilize our services. However, patients from any hospital in any region may request services from our agency. Valley Home Care is also part of Valley Health System.
A physician, family member, social worker or nurse can initiate services by calling 201-291-6000. It is important to remember that you do not have to be hospitalized in order to receive home care. Many patients receive home care as an alternative to hospitalization. Likewise, many outpatient procedures that used to be performed in a hospital setting, such as electrocardiograms, are now performed in the home by VHC’s skilled nurse clinicians. Speak with your physician about how home care can improve the quality of your life.
The Valley Home Care staff is highly regarded for its technical skill, compassionate nature and ability to accommodate the many diverse needs of patients. The staff regularly receives heartwarming letters of thanks from patients and families who were touched by their gentle, caring nature. Our nurses are routinely graded 90 or better by patients who complete our satisfaction questionnaire.
